About Gurudwara Bangla Sahib

The Bangla Sahib Gurudwara is a revered place of worship and one of the most important Sikh shrines in the country. Having golden domes and white-marble structure, it features a main prayer hall, a library, a pond, a hospital, a school and an art gallery. Located near Connaught Place, this holy place hosted Guru Har Kishan, the 8th guru of Sikhism, when he visited Delhi in 1664 as a guest of Raja Jai Singh of Jaipur. The Guru stayed in his 'Bangla' and served many people who were suffering from smallpox epidemic. The water in the pond of this sacred shrine is believed to have healing powers till date. Like other Gurudwaras, langar or free meal is served here to all irrespective of caste, colour, creed or religion. Special gatherings are organized at this religious attraction on the birth anniversary of the Guru, which sees the crowd in massive numbers coming to pay their obeisance at the shrine.

Historical Context: The place where the gurudwara is built was originally a bungalow owned by Raja Jai Sing, a ruler in the seventeenth century. This building was later pulled down to construct Connaught Place, a brand new shopping area on New Delhi.
Pro Tip: When visiting Bangla Sahib. Dress modestly and keep your head covered at all times when inside the gurudwara
